9.3.5 THE TAROT SKILL (Secondary)
Tarot is the skill of flinging cards inscribed with powerful images to great effect. It is said that in ancient days the original Tarot was much different than what is seen in these modern times, as the cards have evolved to reflect aspects of the Last Nine Vernal Gods. The skill was developed in cities and is primarily used by the guardian archetype. It is an excellent all-around skill with a variety of offensive, defensive and miscellaneous powers. To use the skill, you must first find an artist to supply you with some blank tarot cards and a palette of paint. Then, you INSCRIBE <card> with <image> (assuming you have the ability to inscribe). Once the card is ready, you simply FLING <card type> at <target>/ground. Some cards require you to fling the card at a target, some at the ground. Enchanters with high enchantment skill and planar skill can create inter-dimensional card packs which allow access to an interdimensional rift. This rift can store a great deal of cards. You can IND/OUTD <card> to place or remove cards from your rift (eg OUTD MAGICIAN). To see the contents of your tarot rift, type DL or DECKLIST.
